ISBA Midyear Meeting (Joint meeting with the Illinois Judges Association)
December 12 - 14, 2013
The Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, Chicago, Illinois
Join us December 12-14 as members of the Illinois State Bar Association and the Illinois Judges Association gather in Chicago to conduct the business of the bench and bar and celebrate professional achievements.
Our meeting begins Thursday with the Opening Reception where you can mix and mingle with old friends and new acquaintances. For those of you interested in pursuing a career as a law professor or administrator, we invite you to attend a related program sponsored by SIU School of Law.
On Friday we will present two joint IJA/ISBA programs: The Pitfalls of Running for Judicial Office and The Intersection of Technology and Law: The Impact of Social Media, Mobile Devices, the Internet and More. Additionally, ISBA will conduct two Master Series CLE seminars featuring nationally-recognized speaker, Steve Stark – Speaking to Win: Building Effective Communication Skills and Legal Writing in the Smartphone Age.
At Friday evening's event we'll honor the Supreme Court of Illinois, and new Chief Justice Rita B. Garman will serve as the featured speaker.
All of this camaraderie will take place at the Chicago Sheraton Hotel & Towers, where you are just a short walk away from all the holiday pageantry that downtown Chicago has to offer.
